City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

A Proclamation 

Whereas, for years Chicago has received wide- 
spread commendation for the success of its Clean- 
up — Paint-Up — Light-Up — Plant-Up campaigns, 
these valuable civic projects having been accepted 
as a model for similar efforts in hundreds of other 
American communities; and 

Whereas, in Chicago itself these well planned 
ventures in community housekeeping and city-wide 
beautification have encouraged a deeper sense of 
civic pride and morale; and 

Whereas, The Chicago Association of Commerce, 
for more than a generation, has sponsored and 
directed this splendid demonstration of true citi- 
zenship by enlisting the assistance of all our school 
children as well as hundreds of adult organizations 
to help beautify our city; and 

Now Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
Chicago, declare the period of April 22 to May 4 



2350 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO

inclusive, as the period for the spring drive for 
Clean-Up — Paint-Up — Liglit-Up — Plant-Up, and 
urge that all residents of Chicago make special 
efforts to freshen up their premises, their homes, 
and their places of business by cleaning, painting, 
lighting, planting and repairing, in order that our 
city may be that much more attractive to visitors 
from other sections of the country. 

Dated this 20th day of April, A. D. 1940 

(Signed) Edward J. Ejelly,

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

Proclamation 

Whereas, The American Legion is sponsoring 

National Employment Week during the period of 

May 1 to 8, inclusive, with Sunday, May 5, desig- 
nated as Employment Sunday; and 

Whereas, the problem of employment for work- 
ers over forty is a much more serious one than for 
younger workers through no personal failing but 
because of circumstances beyond their control and 
too often through an unfounded prejudice because 
of their age; and 

Whereas, most World War Veterans are in this 
age group ; and 

Whereas, in conjunction with this campaign all 
unemployed persons over forty and veterans, espec- 
ially, are requested to register for employment with 
their local offices of the Illinois State Employment 
Service to the end that this agency may be of as- 
sistance in procuring employment service for them 
without charge; and 

Whereas, it is desirable that the employers of 
Chicago, needing the services of experienced, able 
and competent persons within the age range of 
veterans, give them preferential consideration in 
filling vacancies ; and 

Whereas, the President of the United States has 
issued a Proclamation setting aside this week as 
National Employment Week, and the Governor of 
Illinois, a Proclamation setting aside this week as 
Employment Week for Illinois. 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby proclaim the period 
from May 1 to May 8, inclusive as Employment 
Week, for this community, and Sunday, May 5, as 
Employment Sunday, and I hereby call upon all un- 
employed persons, especially veterans and others 
over forty, to cooperate in the matter of registering 
with the Illinois State Employment Service local 
office, and I respectfully call upon all employers in 
this vicinity to accord to this group of unemployed, 
through the facilities of the Illinois State Employ- 
ment Service and The American Legion, full and 
complete cooperation in aiding them in procuring 
some form of acceptable remunerative employment 
solely on a basis of their qualifications without re- 
gard to their age. 

Dated this 25th day of April, A. D. 1940. 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 



Designation of the Period May 4-12, 1940 as "Chi- 
cago Home Show Week". 

City op Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

Proclamation 

Whereas, the National House and Garden Ex- 
position, dedicated to better homes, will be held 
here May 4 to 12, 1940, at the Chicago Coliseum; 
and 

Whereas, this Exposition, as a great exposition 
of home making products, home planning, home 
modernization and home beautification, attracts the 
interest of home owners and prospective home build- 
ers in this area; and 

Whereas, as a civic institution, the exposition will 
do much to advance Chicago's position as a great 
home city and will further stimulate a pride in 
making our city the most beautiful in the entire 
country; and 

Whereas, the cooperation of all citizens is de- 
sirable in this great movement; 

Now, Therefore, I designate the period of May 4 
to 12, inclusive, as Chicago Home Show Week, and 
urge as many Chicago people as possible to attend 
during the nine days that this great exposition is in 
progress. 

Dated this Twentieth day of April, A. D. 1940.

Report of Disapproval of an M.F.T. Project (Studies, 

Etc. for Improvement of State Highways and 

Arterial Streets and Control of Traffic 

Thereon) . 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was ordered published and referred to the 
Committee on Finance : 

State of Illinois 

Department of Public AVorks and Buildings 

Division of Highways 

Springfield 

May 1, 1940 
Mr. Ludwig D. Schreiber 
City Cleric 
Boom 107 City Hall 
Chicago, Rlinois 

Dear Sir — The City Council passed an ordinance 
on March 20, 1940 appropriating $5,000.00 from the 
motor fuel tax allotment for the payment of en- 
gineering costs in connection with the construction 
and reconstruction of State Highways and Arterial 
Streets and the maintenance of Arterial Streets. 
This is to include studies and investigations and the 
preparation of plans for the improvement of such 
highways and the control of traffic thereon, and is 
to be done under the direction of the Committee 
on Traffic and Public Safety. 

It is our opinion that the expenditures of the 
Committee on Traffic and Public Safety is a gen- 
eral obligation of the city which is not chargeable 
to the Motor Fuel Tax fund. 

The Motor Fuel Tax Law provides for the pay- 
ment of engineering in connection with specific con- 
struction, reconstruction or maintenance projects 
of State highways and Arterial Streets and states 
that ordinances or resolutions shall specify the loca- 
tion, type, length and width of the proposed im- 
provement. The above ordinance does not meet this 
requirement and approval is therefore withheld. 



(Signed) 



Very truly yours, 

Ernst Lieberman, 
Chief Highway Engineer.

Recommendation for Selection of Chicago as a Site 

for a Proposed Federal Aircraft Engine 

Research Laboratory. 

The City Clerk presented the following memoran- 
dum of the secretary of the Chicago Aero Commis- 
sion, which was referred to the Committee on Avia- 
tion and Recreation : 

Chicago Aero Commission • 

Upon motion properly made and seconded, it 
was resolved that the Secretary of this Commission 
transmit to the President of the Board of Alder- 
men of the City of Chicago a memorandum recom- 
mending that the City of Chicago make application 
to the National Advisory Committee for Aeronau- 
tics of Washington, D. C, for selection as a site for 
the proposed aircraft engine laboratory which has 
been recommended by that body to the Congress of 
the United States. 

From the information now at hand, Chicago is 
eligible for favorable consideration from every 
standpoint, no facts having been adduced to the 
contrary. 

Assumption that such a laboratory will be built 
is based on a statement in the 25th annual report 
of the National Advisory Committee for Aero- 
nautics dated December 21st, 1939, and transmit- 
ted by the President of the United States to the 
Congress on January 8th, 1940. 

In this report the National Advisory Committee 
for Aeronautics states as follows : 

"This committee, therefore, urgently recom- 
mends that an engine research laboratory be 
constructed at the earliest possible date, in a lo- 
cation easily accessible to the aircraft engine in- 
dustry.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



May 2, 1940 



"In making this recommendation, the com- 
mittee Avislics to call attention to the fact that 
the reason for foreign leadership in certain im- 
portant types of military aircraft is due in part 
to the superiority of foreign liquid-cooled en- 
gines. At the present time, American facilities 
for research on aircraft power plants are inade- 
quate and cannot be compared with the facilities 
for research in other major fields of aviation. 

"This committee also recommends that an in- 
vestigation be made of the engine research facil- 
ities which may be available at universities and 
other _ scientific organizations, with a view to 
coordinating these facilities and encouraging 
their most effective use. The committee is more 
than ever impressed -^vith the desirability of using 
to the fullest possible extent the research facil- 
ities available in universities and other scientific 
organizations. The committee believes that the 
proper use and coordination of these facilities is 
one of the most important functions that can be 
carried on by the National Advisory Committee 
for Aeronautics." 

It is therefore to be noted that the City of Chi- 
cago is "in a location easily accessible to the air- 
port engine industry," and furthermore it has 
"research facilities available in universities and 
other scientific organizations." 

Action by the Board of Aldermen leading to di- 
rect assistance and supporting the efforts of the 
Chicago Association of Commerce in this enterprise 
is hereby recommended.

To the Honorable, the City Council, City of Chi- 
cago, City Hall. 

Dear Sirs — At a meeting of the Board of Health 
on April 15, 1940, a resolution adopting the modi- 
fied scarlet fever quarantine regulations of the Il- 
linois Department of Public Health, promulgated 
March 21, 1940, and rescinding conflicting regula- 
tions, was approved. The resolution is as follows : 

"Be it resolved that the modification of scar- 
let fever quarantine 'Amending the manual 

AND outline of PROCEDURE FOR HEALTH OFFI- 
CERS FOR THE CONTROL OP COMMUNICABLE DI- 
SEASES, as revised and in force throughout Illi- 
nois, April 30, 1935, by changing Section 2, 
Page 149, to read as follows: 

Section 2. Relating to Quarantine of Scarlet 
Fever : 

(a) The following persons may enter or 
leave the quarantined premises: 

1. The attending physician 

2. Minister of the gospel 

3. Local or State health authorities or their 
duly authorized representatives 

4. Properly trained nurses, if approved by 
the local health authority 

5. The wage earner or earners, provided all 
the following requirements are met: 

a. That the wage earner is not a food- 
handler; 

b. That his occupation does not bring him 
in contact with children; 

c. That the wage earner is over 16 years 
of age; 



d. That the patient can be and is isolated 
in the home in such a manner that the 
wage earner shall not have direct con- 
tact with the patient or his secretions 
at any time; 

e. That the local health authority or his 
duly authorized representative has made 
a special investigation in each case, and 
gives the wage earner written permis- 
sion to enter and leave the quarantined 
premises for the sole purpose of en- 
gaging in his daily work, such permis- 
sion to be withdrawn at any time when, 
in the judgment of the local health au- 
thority, the above requirements are not 
properly observed. (See also Section 1 
(b), Page 148.) 

No other persons may enter or leave the quar- 
antined premises until the termination of 
quarantine. Others who continue to reside 
on the premises shall be quarantined on same 
until quarantine is terminated. Premises may 
be extended to include the private yard or 
porch, provided there is no contact with other 
children. 

(b) Placards shall be posted in a modified 
quarantine in the same manner as in an un- 
modified quarantine. 

(c) In those residences in which the patient 
and a trained attendant are isolated in a sep- 
arate room with individual bath, and where no 
article or utensil is permitted to be removed 
from the room unless first thoroughly disin- 
fected, according to the rules and. regulations 
of the Illinois Department of Public Health 
relative to concurrent disinfection. Such room 
or rooms and bath occupied exclusively by the 
patient and the attendant, can be considered 
and quarantined as premises separate from 
the rest of the house. (However, see Section 1,

February 21, 1940, Page 1991-2 of the Journal, 
these regulations are submitted for consideration 
and publication in the Journal of Proceedings of 
the City Council, as required. 

Because of the existing high incidence of scar- 
let fever and the increasing requests for hospitali- 
zation, it is of vital importance that these regula- 
tions be published in the Journal and made effec- 
tive at the earliest possible date. 

The Board directs me to express its appreciation 
for your cooperation. 

By direction of the Board of Health.

April 29, 1940. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

Ee: Streeter, et al. v. Chicago Title & Trust 
Company, et al. 

Gentlemen — On April 25, 1940 there was en- 
acted what seems probable to be the concluding 
phase in the more than 40-year controversy waged 
by George Wellington Streeter and his heirs for 
title to and possession of lands within that dis- 
trict of the city sometimes referred to as " Streeter- 
ville." On that day Judge Holly of the United 
States District Court sustained the pleas of res 
judicata filed by the defendants and dismissed an 
ejectment action instituted some 20 years ago 
by Streeter 's heirs. To the action the City of 
Chicago and over 2,000 other corporations and in- 
dividuals were made parties defendant. 

The land involved in the dispute contains ap- 
proximately 186 acres lying generally east of Lake 
Shore drive and Michigan avenue between Oak 
street on the north and Washington street on the 
south, which is now built up with great hotels and 
apartment buildings and costly structures such as 
the Navy Pier, Northwestern University's Chicago 
campus. Furniture Mart, Passavant Memorial Hos- 
pital, Palmolive Building and other imposing im- 
provements. Its value was estimated a few years 
ago at $800,000,000.00. 

The members of the Council will remember that 
Streeter and his wives were picturesque charac- 
ters, the dramatis personae of one of Chicago's in- 
teresting comedy-dramas. Streeter had served in 
the Civil War, become a showman and later a 
steam boat operator. In the spring of 1886 he 
built and launched in Chicago a small boat called 
the "Eeutan," which he employed in Chicago 
Eiver and Lake Michigan passenger service. In 
the summer of that year this boat was grounded 
and wrecked in shallow water somewhere off the 
foot of Superior street. After the vessel sank 
the actions of the waves are said to have built an 
island around the craft, on which Streeter and his 
wife lived and from which they began their 
famous squatters fight for the possession of fab- 
ulous riches. Then followed numerous disputes, en- 
counters with the police, dispossession proceed- 
ings and extensive litigation in State and Federal 
courts. After Streeter 's death in 1921, at the age 
of 84, "Ma" Streeter, his second wife, carried on

1. The Fort Dearborn Memorial Commission met 
in the Old Town Room of the Sherman Hotel at 
12 :30 p. m., March 7, 1940. After consideration of 
routine business, the Chairman reported that further 
research into the records of Fort Dearborn shows 
that the following named members of the Garrison 
in 1812, all of whom met heroic deaths in or after 
the action with the Indians on August 15, 1812, 
are deserving of recognition by the City of Chicago : 

Surgeon's Mate Isaac Van Voorhis. 

The Chicago Militia Detachment in the person of 
Sergeant Thomas Burns. 

Private Richard Garner, Captain Nathan Heald's 
Company. 

Private James Latta, Captain Nathan Heald's 
Company. 

, • 

The Chairman further reported that in his opin- 
ion that there are others who should be honored 
but that no opportunity offers to honor them in the 
vicinity of the site of the Fort. 

2. The Chairman read brief statements of the 
services of the above named members of the Gar- 
rison and the ways in which they met their deaths. 
The Commission therefore cites Surgeon's Mate 
Isaac Van Voorhis, (see Annex F attached hereto) 
and recommends : 

"That the boat landing on the south bank of the 
Chicago River between the bridge over the Chi- 
cago River at N. Michigan Avenue and the N. 
Wabash Avenue Bridge be named "Van Voorhis 
Landing. ' ' 

The Commission therefore cites the Chicago Mi- 
litia Detachment in the person of Sergeant Thomas 
Burns, (see Annex G attached hereto) and recom- 
mends : 

"That the boat landing on the north bank of the 
Chicago River between the bridge over the river 
at N. Michigan Avenue and the Wrigley Building 
be named "Burns Landing." 

The Commission therefore cites Private Richard 
Garner (see Annex H attached hereto) and recom- 
mends : 

"That the boat landing at the bridge over the 
Chicago River at N. Michigan Avenue immedi- 
ately east of the south end of the bridge be named 
"Garner Landing." 

The Commission therefore cites Private James 
Latta (see Annex I attached hereto) and recom- 
mends : 

"That the boat landing at the bridge over the 
Chicago River at N. Michigan Avenue, immedi- 



ately east of the north end of the bridge be 
named "Latta Landing." 

The Commission further recommends (see Annex 
J attached hereto) : 

"That in the naming of new streets, squares and 
parks, particularly those in the subdivision that 
will some day be laid out over the freight yards 
of the Illinois Central Railroad, east of Beaubien 
Court, and north of E. Randolph Street, and 
east of N. Michigan Avenue, that the list of names 
of the members of the garrison of Fort Dearborn 
in August, 1812, be given preference in so far 
as doing so does not conflict with the laws and 
ordinances of the City of Chicago, and that 
instructions be given to the Superintendent of 
Maps and Plats and Examiner of Subdivisions to 
that effect." 

The list of names referred to is embodied in the 
"Report of casualties in the action on the Lake 
Shore of Chicago between the Indians and Captain 
Nathan Heald's Command, August 15, 1812." 

3. The Commission further approved the revised 
list of citizens recommended for Honorary Mem- 
bership on the Commission submitted by the Com- 
mittee on Membership. This list has already been 
submitted to you and the appointments made as 
recommended. There being no further business

The following are the communications submitted

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

April 30, 1940. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago, 

GeNTLiEMEN : 

Re : City of Chicago, a municipal cor- 
poration, V. Harold R. Weinacker, 
et al. No. 39 C 6968. 

City V. Weinacker was a condemnation case for 
the purpose of acquiring the right of way for sub- 
way purposes in the neighborhood of Milwaukee 
and Ashland Avenue and included a triangular 
strip of land at Ashland, Division and Milwaukee 
Avenues with a frontage of 147.50 feet on Milwau- 
kee Avenue, 110.14 feet on Division and 98.39 feet 
on Ashland Avenue. 

This suit was hotly contested and after a trial 
lasting several weeks the jury brought in a verdict 
of $40,000 for the tract. The testimony ranged 
from $35,000 on the part of the City's witnesses to 
$130,000 for some of the owners' witnesses. The 
jury brought in a verdict of $40,000 on which judg- 
ment was entered. The owners have taken steps 
toward an appeal to the Supreme Court. 

Negotiations have been had and the owners have 
submitted a proposition to the City, a copy of 
which is hereto attached, to waive the appeal, and 
will give a deed to the fee of the property in con- 
sideration of the receipt of an additional sum of 
$5,000. It will be very advantageous to the City 
to have a deed to the fee of this property. I am 
advised by attorneys for the City that the expense 
of attending an appeal and the proper presenta- 
tion of the record in this case would cost approxi- 
mately as much as the additional amount asked by 
the owners and advise acceptance of the proposi- 
tion. I have also taken up this matter with the 
P. W. A. engineer and representatives and they 
are also of the opinion that the proposition should 
be accepted. 

I therefore recommend to your Honorable body 
that the offer of settlement of this matter by the 
waiving of appeal and giving of a deed for $5,000 
be accepted.

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, There were 69 persons killed in Chi- 
cago in 1939 by automobiles operated by so-called 
"hit and run" drivers; and 

Whereas, A large number of these hit and run 
drivers have not been apprehended by the police 
because of lack of evidence; and 

Whereas, Studies made by the Committee on 
Traffic and Public Safety indicate that in nearly 
every case the witnesses at the coroner's inquest 
into these hit-and-run accidents are unable to give 
the license number of the automobile responsible 
for the accident because of the usually large num- 
ber of digits on the license plate or because the size 
and shape of the digits are such that they are hard 
to read or remember; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Secretary of State be and he 
is hereby requested to advise this City Council as to 
the practicability and feasibility of changing auto- 
mobile license plates: 

(1) By reducing the number of digits on the 
license plates through the use of a letter 
together with only two or three or four 
figures in lieu of the present numbering 
system; and 

(2) By means of a change in the size and type of 
the plates and identifying characters in 
order to make the license numbers more 
legible; 

and the City Clerk is hereby directed to transmit 
a certified copy of this resolution to Honorable 
Edward J. Hughes, Secretary of State.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



May 2, 1940 



'Application not approved. Proposed im- 
provement does not conform with requirements 
of zoning ordinance'; 
and 

Whereas, tlie proposed sign is to be located in 
an apartment district and w^ould violate the strict 
letter of the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, a public hearing was held on this ap- 
plication by the Board of Appeals at its regular 
meeting held on April 15, 1940, after due public 
notice by publication in the Chicago Journal of 
Commerce on March 30, 1940 ; and 

Whereas, the use district maps show that the 
premises are located in an apartment district ; 
and 

Whereas, the Board of Appeals is authorized 
by law in cases where there are practical diffi- 
culties or particular hardship in the way of car- 
rying out the strict letter of the zoning ordinance 
to hear and recommend variations of such ordi- 
nance to the City Council under rules provided 
in such ordinance; and 

Whereas, under the rules provided in the zoning 
ordinance relating to the authority of the Board 
of Appeals to recommend variations to the City 
Council there appears the following rule in Sec- 
tion 28, par. (1) : 

'Granting of permission to devote premises 
in a * * * Apartment District to a non-conform- 
ing * * * C use, * * * in a block * * * in which 
there exists a non-conforming * * * C use of a 
similar nature ' ; 

and 

Whereas, the Board of Appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the par- 
ties and being fully advised in the premises, finds 
that there are several similar non-conforming uses 
located in the block in which the premises are 
situated and that the applicant should be granted 
relief on the ground of particular hardship in the 
way of carrying out the strict letter of the zoning 
ordinance on condition that all permits necessary 
for the erection of the proposed sign shall be ob- 
tained within three months and all work involved 
shall be completed within six months after the 
passage of an ordinance by the City Council ; that 
a sketch of the proposed sign shall be approved 
by the Board of Appeals and that all other ordi- 
nances of the City of Chicago shall be complied 
with before a permit is issued herein; and 

Whereas, the Board further finds that the pro- 
posed sign is to be erected in an apartment dis- 
trict on premises occupied by an existing hotel 
building and is to replace an existing sign at 
the same location; that there is particular hard- 
ship in this case in the way of carrying out the 
strict letter of the zoning ordinance and that the 
variation may be made consistently in harmony 
with the intent and purpose of the zoning regu- 
lations and would not be detrimental to the pub- 
lic welfare, safety or health, 

Resolved, that the Board of Appeals by virtue 
of the authority conferred upon it does hereby 
recommend that the City Council enact the fol- 
lowing ordinance : 

'Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City

necessary to keep same in safe operating condi- 
tion, nor to the replacement of parts with other 
parts which serve a similar purpose to those 
which are replaced, providing safe conditions 
are maintained; nor to other changes in existing 
devices, except as hereinafter prescribed.

death, has left us an eloquent human record of

Whereas, The patience and fortitude of this 
militant and kindly churchman has helped to build 
many institutions of religion to provide the

trodden, his work among the youth, his labors in 
building responsible citizenship among our peoples,

richer for his coming; and 

Whereas, The genuine modesty and recognized 
leadership of this simple man of God in answering 
every call of civic need inspired the young and old 
to make the doctrine of being "our brother's 
keeper" a living force in our community; and

left us the poorer for his passing; now, therefore,

FORT DEARBORN MEMORIAL COMMISSION. 



Recommendation for the Marking of the Outline of 

the First Fort Dearborn on the South Plaza 

of the N. Michigan Av. Bridge. 

The City Clerk presented the following communi- 
cation, submitted by the Chairman of the Fort Dear- 
born Memorial Commission, which was, together with 
the annexes transmitted therewith, referred to the 
Committee on Finance: 

Fort Dearborn Memorial Commission 
City of Chicago 

May 6, 1940. 
Report No. 4. 

To: Mayor Edward J. Kelly and the City Council 
of the City of Chicago: 

1. Herewith Recommendation No. 11 of the Com- 
mission accompanied by Annex L, "Report on the 
Location of the First Fort Dearborn," by H. A. 
Musham, Research Engineer of this city, which the 
Commission accepts and approves. 

2. This report is the result of an exhaustive study 
of Fort Dearborn and early Chicago extending over 
a long period of time. On the "Plan for Memorial" 
(in pocket on rear cover), the location of the walls 
of the stockade of the first Fort Dearborn is given 
correct to within two and a half feet in an east 
and west direction, within 5 feet in a north and 
south direction, and with orientation correct to 
within a quarter degree. It will be noted that 
practically all of the stockade with the exceptions 
of the northwest blockhouse, the north wall and the 
northeast corner is on dry land. This outline with 
the exception of the northwest blockhouse and the 
northeast corner can be marked out on the docks 
at N. Michigan Avenue, the stairways leading to 
the upper level of the South Plaza of the bridge at 
N. Michigan Avenue, and on the South Plaza itself. 
If this is done the result will be a piecemeal dis- 
jointed outline at different elevations and levels 
which will not be very effective as a memorial to 
the fort as it would only confuse the spectator try- 
ing to locate it. It would further tend to interfere 
with traffic at this important intersection as the line 
of the south wall crosses the South Plaza between 
the east and west safety islands and it may cause 
accidents by slow thinking or dumb motorists. Mr. 
Musham suggests that the outline be marked out 
in a position 67 feet south and 11 feet west of the 
true location. In this position the outline covers 
about half of the true location, and the walls will 
not interfere with the direction of traffic but ma- 
terially aid it. It will be far more effective as a 
memorial as the spectator can see it all in one 
glance. It further can be more easily laid out and 
marked and maintained. 

3. The Commission therefore recommends that 
the location suggested by Mr. Musham and shown 
on the Plan for Memorial in his Report be adopted 
as the outline of the walls of the stockade of the 
first Fort Dearborn, and that it be marked out in 
parallel stripes of red, white and blue, painted on 
the pavement and sidewalks of the South Plaza, the 
stripes to be five or six inches wide and to be kept 
in bright and fresh condition until such time as it 
may be necessary to repair or replace the surface 
of the pavement when the outline can be laid down 
in permanent material. 

4. As the upper level of the bridge at N. Michi- 
gan Avenue and the South Plaza thereto is under 



the control of the Chicago Park District it is re- 
quested that after approval that a copy of the at- 
tached recommendation be forwarded to it for action 
and execution. A copy of Mr. Musham 's Report 
has already been sent to it. 

5. The Commission hopes to be able to dedicate 
this outline on the Saturday following Flag Day, 
June 14, with appropriate ceremonies and a parade. 
This day has been chosen as it is especially desir- 
able that the Reserve Officers Training Corps of 
the Chicago Schools participate. It therefore re- 
quests that this Recommendation, No. 11, attached 
hereto be given the earliest possible consideration. 



Harry A. Musham, 

Chairman.

recommended that certain of the personnel of the 
first Fort Dearborn be honored by naming streets, 
squares and landings in the vicinity of the fort and 
now un-named, after them. (See Plan for Memo- 
rial in Annex L to Report No. 4.) The status of 
these recommendations is as follows: 

Recommendation No. 2, Annex C. attached 
hereto. The driveway to be constructed in the 
near future along the south bank of the Chicago 
River connecting N. Michigan Avenue and the 
Outer Drive, to be named E. Whistler Drive. 
This has been taken up with the Illinois Central 
Railroad Company, the owner of the property 
over which the projected driveway is to be 
built. The Company does not specifically object 
to calling this drive E. Whistler Drive, but it 
does object to more than one name on the whole 
drive along the river bank. It considers that 
the Lake Front Ordinance of 1929 which is an 
agreement between the City, the South Park 
Board and the railroad, already provides for the 
naming of the projected street as Wacker Drive. 
While the Commission does not entirely agree 
with this interpretation of the references to an 
addition to Wacker Drive east of N. Michigan 
Avenue, it realizes that the Railroad Company 
has certain rights in the matter which cannot 
be ignored and that to change these references 
so as to permitting the projected street to be 
named E. Whistler Drive would be a very

difficult matter into which it does not care to 
enter. 

The Commission therefore recommends that 
the Mayor withdraw from the City Council, 
Recommendation No. 2. Further consideration 
will be given to means and ways of providing a 
suitable memorial to Captain Whistler and a 
report made thereon at a later date. 

Recommendation No. 4, Annex E. attached 
hereto. This calls for the naming of the small 
square to be formed between the approaches to 
the N. Wabash Avenue Bridge and the new N. 
State Street Bridge on the north bank of the 
Chicago River, Ronan Square. This matter 
has been taken up with the Chicago and North- 
western Railroad Company which owns the prop- 
erty over which the square will be built. Mr. 
Charles M. Thomson, Trustee for the railroad 
has expressed himself as being against the pro- 
posal, he being the first person to express himself 
as not in sympathy with the work of the Com- 
mission. The Commission does not agree with 
Mr. Thomson, but taking into consideration the 
possibility that in the near future improvements 
may be built along the north bank of the river 
that will remove all signs of a square between 
N. State Street and N. Wabash Avenue, it rec- 
ommends that further consideration of naming 
this square after Ensign Ronan be dropped. It 
therefore requests the Mayor to withdraw Rec- 
ommendation No. 4, from the City Council. The 
Commission is now carrying further studies on 
ways of honoring Ensign Ronan, on which a 
report will be forthcoming at a later date. 

Recommendation No. 3, Annex D. attached 
hereto. This calls for naming the square on the 
south bank of the river between E. South Water 
Street, E. Wacker Drive, N. Wabash Avenue and 
N. State Street, Heald Square. The Commis- 
sion has been informed through Mr. Howard 
C. Brodman of the Bureau of Maps and Plats, 
that Corporation Counsel Hodes has given an 
unofficial opinion on this recommendation to the 
effect that before this Square can be named 
Heald Square that the consent of 60 per cent 
of the property owners of the above-named 
streets throughout their entire lengths must be 
secured. 

The Commission is of the opinion that this 
interpretation of the law relative to changing 
street names recently enacted by the State Legis- 
lature is far fetched, and that this law does not 
apply to the naming of squares and parks along 
which streets may run. It therefore adheres to 
its recommendation that this square be named 
Heald Square and requests that action be taken 
on it at an early date. 

Recommendation Nos. 5 to 8, Annexes F to I 
inc. attached hereto. These call for the naming 
of the landings at the bridge at N. Michigan 
Avenue after Surgeon's Mate Isaac N. Van 
Voorhis, Sergeant Thomas Burns, and Privates 
Richard Garner and James Latta all of whom 
were either killed in the Action with the Indians 
on August 15, 1812 or shortly afterward. These 
landings are much used by tourists and the 
people of the City who board the motors that 
dock here for short trips on the river and in 
the harbor. These landings are under the con- 
trol of the City and on city property. No one 



should have any objections to these recommenda- 
tions. They form an important part of the 
Memorial to Fort Dearborn. The Commission 
therefore requests that early action be taken on 
them. 

Recommendation No. 9, Annex J, attached 
hereto. This calls for naming of other streets, 
parks and squares throughout the city after those 
members of the garrison of the fort in 1812 who 
have not as yet been honored by the City, or 
for whom recommendations have not been made 
by the Commission. The Illinois Central Rail- 
road Company has signified its willingness to 
give preference to the recommendations of the 
Commission in naming such streets and squares 
as may be created when its freight yards east 
of Beaubien Court are laid out as a subdivision. 
The Commission will make such recommendations 
in the near future. 

3. The Commission has adhered to its plan of 
keeping all parts of the Memorial to Fort Dear- 
born grouped around the site of the fort or on 
the reservation as it was in 1812. Carrying out 
this policy to its logical conclusion it recommends 
that the bridge over the Chicago River at N. 
Michigan Avenue which covers a large part of 
the site be named the Fort Dearborn Bridge (An- 
nex M, Recommendation No. 13, attached hereto). 
As the upper level of the bridge is under the con- 
trol of the Chicago Park District, it requests that 
the City Council approve this recommendation and 
forward it to that body for action. This com- 
pletes the Commission's recommendations with the 
exception possibly of additional Whistler and 
Ronan recommendations previously referred to. 
The plans of the Commission may therefore be 
regarded as complete and these when executed will 
give to the City a Memorial to Fort Dearborn and 
the gallant officers and men who served there, 
that is simple and dignified and which will fit in 
with the present environment of the site of the 
fort and which can be executed at an almost 
negligible cost to the City. 

The Commission would like if it can be done to 
dedicate the outline of the walls of the stockade 
and the memorial flag pole as provided for in the 
Fourth and Third Steps of its Program on the 
Saturday immediately following Flag Day, June 
14. It is therefore requested that action on Rec- 
ommendations 11 and 12, which have already been 
submitted in Reports Nos. 4 and 5, be expedited.

Proposed Sale of Public School Property in a Certain 
District. 

The Committee on Finance, to whom had been re- 
ferred (April 10, 1940), a resolution proposing the 
sale of public school property in a certain district, 
submitted a report recommending the passage of said 
resolution as amended by the Committee. 

Alderman Arvey moved to concur in said report 
and to adopt said resolution as so amended. 

No request was made by any two aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
thereon to the next regular meeting.

said resolution as amended was adopted by yeas and 
nays as follows : 

Yeas — Aldermen Dickerson, Grant, Cohen, Douglas, 
Smith, Daley, Olin, Lindell, Rowan, Connelly, Hart- 
nett, Hogan, McDermott, Kovarik, Boyle, Murphy,

Nays — None. 

The following is said resolution as adopted : 

Whereas, that part of the City of Chicago 
bounded by W. Madison St., W. Roosevelt Rd., S. 
Cicero Ave. and S. Central Ave. is one of the United 
States Government Sections given to the Board of 
Education of the City of Chicago for the use of 
schools, and 

Whereas, a large part of this section is still 
owned by the Board of Education and undeveloped 
as to buildings, and 

Whereas, the undeveloped part of this section 
has become more accessible because of the comple- 
tion of the viaduct and extension of the bus line on 
S. Laramie Ave. over the railroad just north of W. 
Roosevelt Rd., and 

Whereas, this property remaining undeveloped 
is detrimental to the surrounding built up area, 
and 

Whereas, there is an insistent demand for more 
buildings in this section ; now therefore. 

Be it Resolved by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

That the Board of Education of the City of 
Chicago take the necessary steps to sell at public 
sale, pursuant to statute, at its present market 
value, all of the territory not heretofore sold, or 
not necessary for school purposes in the district 
bounded by W. Madison St., W. Roosevelt Rd., S. 
Cicero Ave. and S. Central Ave. ; also that the sale 
be in small parcels and only on condition that 



2438

suitable buildings be erected on the property within 
a reasonable time after such sale ; and 

Be it further Resolved, That the City Clerk be

cation of the City of Chicago, a certified copy of 
this resolution.

thereupon took up for consideration the report of 
the Committee on Finance in the matter of assign- 
ments of certain judgments totaling $3,136,914.23 
held by the City of Chicago against the County of

2313-2314. 

Alderman Arvey moved to concur in said report 
and to pass the ordinance submitted therewith 
[printed in Pamphlet No. 64]. 

During debate, on motion of Alderman Arvey the 
privilege of the floor was extended to First Assist- 
ant Corporation Counsel Joseph F. Grossman for 
the purpose of answering questions asked by Alder- 
men. 

The question thereupon being put, the motion pre- 
vailed and said ordinance was passed by yeas and nays 
as follows : 

Yeas — ^Aldermen Dickerson, Grant, Cohen, Smith, 
Daley, Lindell, Rowan, Connelly, Hartnett, Hogan, 
McDermott, Kovarik, Murphy, O'Hallaren, Duffy, 
Pacelli, Ropa, Sonnenschein, Kacena, Arvey, Bowler, 
Sobota, Sain, Gillespie, Upton, Rostenkowski, Zwiefka, 
Porten, Orlikoski, Kiley, Cullerton, Brody, Ross, 
Cowhey, Crowe, Bauler, Grealis, Meyer, Young, 
Quirk, Keenan and Quinn — 42. 

Nays — ^Aldermen Douglas, Olin, Boyle, Walsh and 
Hilburn — 5. 



The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Whereas, It appears from the estimate of liabili- 
ties at January 1, 1940 included in the annual ap- 
propriation bill for the year 1940 that the unfunded 
debt of the City of Chicago was $16,634,120.21; and 

Whereas, The experience of the City over a pe- 
riod of ten years in the collection of its accounts 
receivable and taxes levied for prior years indicates 
that the amount of cash available and to become 
available for general corporate purposes for the 
year 1940 from all sources, including proceeds from 
the sale of the maximum amount of tax anticipation 
warrants which may be issued according to law, 
will be sufficient only to meet current expenses of 
government for the year 1940; and 

Whereas, The County of Cook became indebted 
to the City of Chicago for Municipal Court costs 
in the sum of $3,136,914.23 and on account thereof 
judgments were secured by the City of Chicago 
against the County of Cook in the Circuit Court 
of Cook County as follows: 

January 12, 1938, $1,758,005.25 and costs— Case 
No. 36-C-5756, 

April 24, 1939, $904,317.48 and costs— Case No. 
38-C-13085, 

June 27, 1939, $474,591.50 and costs— Case No. 
39-C-4860; 

and 

Whereas, The Board of Commissioners of Cook 
County are authorized by law to provide for the 
payment of judgments and interest thereon in equal 
annual installments not to exceed, however, ten in 
number and said Board of Commissioners have pro- 
vided in their annual appropriation ordinance for 
the year 1940 for the payment only of $640,000 on 
account of said judgments; and 

Whereas, On March 16, 1940 A. S. Huyck and 
Company, Inc., and Morris Mather and Company, 
Inc., both of the City of Chicago, offered to pur- 
chase said judgments with the costs and accrued 
interest thereon for the sum of $3,136,914.23, being 
equal to the principal amount of said judgments, 
and delivered to the City of Chicago certified checks 
in the sum of $30,000 as evidence of their good faith 
in making said offer; and 

Whereas, Sale of said judgments has been diffi- 
cult of consummation because their time of pay- 
ment is not fixed and certain and the above offer 
to purchase the judgments is the highest and best 
bid received by the City of Chicago, and acceptance 
of said offer will supply cash in the city treasury 
for expenditure in the maintenance of The Munici- 
pal Court of Chicago and relieve the corporate 
purposes fund of obligations to the extent of 
$3,136,914.23 on account of appropriations for said 
Municipal Court and thereby provide an equal 
amount for the reduction of the unfunded debt 
of the City of Chicago; and 

Whereas, Conversion of said judgment debts into 
cash available for the payment of the just obliga- 
tions of the City is for the best interest of said City; 
therefore, 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Section 1. Authority hereby is given to the 
Mayor, the City Comptroller, and the City Clerk, 
respectively, to sign, countersign and attest with

"Whereas, the Central Life Insurance Com-

tion under the zoning ordinance to permit, in a 
commercial district nearer than 125 feet to an 
apartment district, the establishment and opera- 
tion of a potato chip factory in a one-story exist- 
ing building on premises at 4716 W. Armitage 
avenue; and 

Whereas, the decision of the Commissioner of 
Buildings rendered February 1, 1940 reads : 

'Application not approved. Proposed im- 
provement does not conform with require- 
ments of zoning ordinance.'; 
and 

Whereas, the proposed use is to be located in 
a commercial district nearer than 125 feet to 
an apartment district and would violate the 
strict letter of the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, a public hearing was held on this 
application by the Board of Appeals at its regu- 
lar meeting held on March 11, 1940, after due 
public notice by publication in the Chicago Jour- 
nal of Commerce on February 24, 1940; and 

Whereas, the use district maps show that the 
premises are located in a commercial district 
nearer than 125 feet to an apartment district; 
and 

Whereas, the Board of Appeals is authorized 
by law in cases where there are practical diffi- 
culties or particular hardship in the way of 
carrying out the strict letter of the zoning ordi- 



nance to hear and recommend variations of such 
ordinance to the City Council under rules pro- 
vided in the zoning ordinance ; and 

Whereas, in the rules provided in the zoning 
ordinance relating to the authority of the Board 
of Appeals to recommend variations to the City 
Council there appears .the following rule in 
Section 28, paragraph (8) : 

'Permission to maintain a *** C3 use any- 
where in a Commercial District ***. which 
otherwise would not be permitted by this ordi- 
nance, where clearly the appropriate use of 
neighboring property is not injured thereby.'; 

and 

Whereas, the Board of Appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the 
parties and being fully advised in the premises, 
finds that the applicant should be granted relief 
on the ground of particular hardship in the way 
of carrying out the strict letter of the zoning 
ordinance on condition that the proposed use 
shall not be operated between the hours of 
6 P.M. and 8 A.M. ; that the necessary devices 
shall be installed to eliminate the emission of 
all odors, fumes and gases which may be offen- 
sive or noxious to the occupants of adjoining 
premises devoted to or adapted for other uses ; 
that all permits necessary for the establishment 
of the proposed use and all improvements shall 
be installed within three months after the pas- 
sage of an ordinance by the City Council; and 
that all other ordinances of the City of Chicago 
shall be complied with before a certificate of 
occupancy is issued herein; and 

Whereas, the Board further finds that the 
premises are located in a commercial district 
nearer than 125 ft. to an apartment district 
and directly across the street from a less re- 
stricted district; that there is particular hard- 
ship in the way of carrying out the strict letter 
of the zoning ordinance and that the variation 
may be made consistently in harmony with the 
intent and purpose of the zoning regulations and 
would not be detrimental to the public welfare, 
safety or health. 

Resolved, that the Board of Appeals by virtue 
of the authority conferred upon it does hereby 
recommend that the City Council enact the fol- 
lowing ordinance : 

'Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City

ment and operation of a potato chip factory 
in a one-story existing building on premises 
at 4716 W. Armitage avenue in conformity 
with the findings and recommendations of the 
Board of Appeals of the City of Chicago on 
March 11, 1940. 

Section 2. The Commissioner of Buildings 
is hereby ordered and directed to grant per-

City of Chicago 

Board of Health 

Office of the President 

May 9, 1940. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — ^With respect to the installation of 
counter ice-cream freezer units in the city of Chi- 
cago, where ice-cream is made for consumption 
on the premises, no provisions are contained in 
the Municipal Code for the proper location of 
the unit so that, when used for the manufacture 
of ice-cream, the product will be sufficiently pro- 
tected against contamination. In addition, no pro- 
visions are contained in the Code which require 
adequate and convenient facilities for cleaning and 
disinfecting the equipment and apparatus. 

It is respectfully recommended, therefore, that 
the Municipal Code of Chicago be amended to 
further regulate the installation and operation of 
ice-cream freezers. 

The Health Department is ready to give your 
Honorable Body all possible aid that you may 
request. 

By direction of the Board of Health. 

Yours very truly.

DEPARTMENT OF LAW. 



Report of the Reversal by the Illinois Supreme Court 
of a Judgment Against the City of Chicago. 

The City Clerk presented the following communi- 
cation, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which 
was ordered published and placed on file : 



City of Chicago 
Department of Law 

May 15, 1940. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — For your information we enclose 
herewith a copy of the opinion of the Supreme 
Court in the case of Mary Jane Storen v. City 
of Chicago, (Illinois Supreme Court No. 25375). 

In this case a judgment had been entered in 
the trial court against the city for the sum of 
$15,000 and costs for injuries suffered by the 
plaintiff, a seven year old girl. 

The accident occurred while the plaintiff was 
playing near a fire hydrant in the parkway be- 
tween the sidewalk and the curb. The curj) 
had been depressed many years ago five inches over 
a space of ten feet, apparently for a driveway 
opening. No driveway had ever been constructed 
and a building had been erected on the adjoining 
premises extending past the driveway opening. 
An automobile proceeding along the street struck 
a parked ear causing it to roll along the curb until 
it reached the driveway, whereupon it ran into 
the parkway, pinning the girl to the hydrant. In- 
juries were suffered necessitating the amputation 
of her left leg. 

The city contended on appeal that it was not 
subjected to a liability for negligence by a mere 
failure to construct and maintain a curbing of 
uniform height, where the existing curbing is not 
otherwise defective. The Appellate Court denied 
this contention, holding that although the city was 
not obligated to construct the curb, yet, having 
adopted a plan of putting in curbs on city streets, 
it was the city's duty to guard against the park- 
ways and sidewalks being rendered unsafe owing 
to the lack of a curb {Mary Storen v. City of Chi- 
cago, 300 III. App. 514). 

The decision of the Appellate Court as well as 
the judgment against the city in the trial court 
have now been reversed and the city's contentions 
have been sustained by the highest court in the 
state.

Gentlemen — This ease involves the validity of 
the provision of the Municipal Code of Chicago 
which requires that all milk delivered in quantities 
of less than 1 gallon be delivered in standard milk 
bottles. The case was heard before the Honorable 
Jacob I. Grossman, Master in Chancery, and on 
April 27, 1940 the Master filed with the clerk 
of the District Court his report sustaining the 
validity of the ordinance and recommending that 
the injunction sought to restrain the enforcement 
of the ordinance be denied. On May 7, 1940 ob- 
jections to the report of the Master in Chancery 
were filed in behalf of the plaintiff. 

On May 14, 1940 we appeared before the Honor- 
able Charles E. Woodward, Judge of the United 
States District Court, and requested the entry of a 
decree in accordance with the report of the Master 
in Chancery. Judge Woodward set the case for 
October 16, 1940 for a hearing upon the objections 
to the report of the Master. We pointed out to 
the Judge that the defendants were desirous of 
having a hearing upon the report of the Master 
in Chancery and the objections filed thereto on a 
date considerably earlier than October 16, 1940. 
Counsel for the plaintiff, however, would not agree 
to an earlier hearing, stating that he saw no 
urgency with respect to the matter. 

Very truly yours,

Assistant Corporation Counsel.

In the Matter of a Bill Introduced in the General 

Assembly Licensing Pinball Machines and Ooin 

Player Pianos. 

The City Clerk presented the following communi- 
cation, submitted by the Corporation Counsel, which 
was referred to the Committee on Judiciary and State 
Legislation : 

City op Chicago 
Department of Law 

May 15, 1940. 

To the Honorable, the City 'Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — We transmit herewith House Bill 
No. 33 which was introduced last week by Mr. 
Warfield in the pending special session of the Gen- 
eral Assembly. 

This bill would require every person operating 
a pinball machine or a coin player piano to apply 
for a license so to do to the State Department of 
Finance and to pay a license fee to the State of 
three hundred and sixty-five ($365.00) dollars a 
year for each device. 

The passage of this bill would take from the 
City of Chicago the power vested in it by Article 
V of the Cities and Villages Act to license, regulate, 
tax or prohibit and suppress such devices, which 
power has been sustained by the courts in Levins 
V. City of Chicago 296 111. App. 645 (1938); 
Coleman v. City of Chicago 297 111. App. 130 
(1938) and Self en v. City of Chicago 299 111. App. 
117 (1939) and render innocuous Sections 104-22 
and 193-26 of the Municipal Code. Not only would 
the City be deprived of the power to suppress the 
nuisance feature of such devices but would lose 



the revenue produced by their license and regula- 
tion in case the City Council should wish to enact 
an ordinance licensing them. We consider the 
regulation of these devices purely a local matter 
concerning which its power should not be with- 
drawn and regard this bill as an invasion of the 
City's right of home rule. 

The revenue from these licenses is to be paid 
into the Old Age Assistance Fund, which probably 
brings the bill within the special call which author- 
izes legislation "to provide for raising revenue 
to furnish such assistance." 

Eespectfully submitted, 

Al F. Gorman, 
Assistant Corporation Counsel.

In the Matter of Progress of Work on the State 
Street Subway (Contract S-4B). 

The Committee on Finance submitted the following 
report : 

Chicago, May 15, 1940. 

To the President am,d Members of the City Council: 

Your Committee on Finance, having had under 
consideration a report of progress by the Commis- 
sioner of Subways and Superhighways on Contract 
S-4B — State Street Subway, beg leave to report 
and recommend that said report of progress be

The following is the communication submitted with 
the foregoing committee report: 

City of Chicago 
Department op Subways and Superhighways 

May 7, 1940. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman 

and Members of the Committee on Finance 

of the City Council, City of Chicago 

Gentlemen — In order that your committee and 
the City Council may be fully advised as to the 
progress being made on the construction of the Ini- 
tial System of Subways, I wish to report as follows : 

The contract for State Street Subway, Contract 
S-4B, was awarded to John C. Tully Company on 
November 1, 1939. The specifications provide that 
the contract shall be substantially completed within 
210 days. This fixes the date of completion of this 
section as of May 28, 1940. Based upon the pres- 
ent rate of progress and the present status of the 
work, we now estimate that the work will be com- 
pleted approximately June 20, 1940, or approxi- 
mately 23 days later than the date specified in 
the contract. 

The contract provides that extensions of time 
shall be granted to the contractor for unavoidable 
delay due to a variety of causes enumerated in the 
contract, provided that such delays are entirely be- 
yond the control of the contractor. In our opin- 
ion, however, no delays have occurred, which would 
entitle the contractor to an extension of time under 
the terms of the contract. 

The contract provides further that if the con- 
tractor does not meet the requirements as to time, 
progress and final completion within the dates speci- 
fied in the contract, the City may declare the con- 
tract forfeited. It appears, however, that the con- 



tract will be completed in ample time to allow the 
completion of the auxiliary structures before the 
completion date specified in the grant agreement 
with the Government. The interest of the City in 
our opinion is best served, therefore, by allowing 
the contractor, the John C. Tully Company, to con- 
tinue and complete the contract for Section S-4B 
even though there may be a technical default as to 
time of completion. It should be noted that the 
contractor has prosecuted his work diligently, the 
failure to complete on time being due, in my opin- 
ion, solely to the fact that the daily progress which 
he has been able to realize under the conditions 
encountered and the methods employed has been 
less than that anticipated. 

As the work progresses on other contracts on 
the Subway, similar information will be presented 
to your Committee as occasion arises.

JOUENAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



May 15, 1940 



Whereas, The real value of Americanism, with 
its spirit of good-will and tolerance, can be re- 
affirmed through acquaintance with the works of 
the outstanding literary figures of the American 
past; and 

Whereas, Walt Whitman, the first truly Ameri- 
can poet to draw nourishment primarily from the 
American environment, is today more than ever 
symbolic of the American ideas of good-will and 
tolerance ; and 

Whereas, The abiding influence of Walt Whit- 
man has been commemorated by the recent issue 
of a special portrait stamp of the poet, issued 
under the order of the Postmaster-G-eneral of the
